Books : High Crime Area: Tales of Darkness and Dread (Paperback)
A collection of darkly compelling tales from the unique imagination of Joyce Carol Oates. A young professor is convinced she's being followed, but when she confronts her shadow events take an unexpected turn... A promising student attempts to save her brother from his descent into madness, but she soon finds out there may be more to his world than to hers... A renowned author embarks on a grand tour of Europe, but soon his bad manners threaten to cost him more than he has to give... These biting and beautiful stories force us to confront, one by one, the demons within.

You cant go wrong wit...

You can't go wrong with Oates. I'm not usually a short story reader but these kept my interest.

Bam! 1st story of the ...

Bam! 1st story of the collection, "The Home at Craigmillnar" is a 5 star, awesome read! "Demon" gave me a severe case of the hee-bee-geebies! And, "Toad Baby" sort of freaked me out! Sadly, I really didn't like "The Rescuer" - the longest story in the collection. And overall, I did not like the last four as much as the first four. So, I'll split the difference, and give it 3 stars!
